clues into the latest graffiti attack at city hall. a surveillance camera captured these silhouettes of people climbing the west plaza wall last night. hours later security crews found these large tags on the building's main entrance walkways. we are told taggers do small hits daily and big ones about once a month. there is a surveillance camera above one of the walls that was tagged. but it didn't capture the vandal. >> this plaza is for people to come together on. the same reason it makes open inviting also makes it vulnerable to do damage to it. >> the city can no longer afford to have a special police antigraffiti unit and security guards don't work all night so the taggers take advantage of that too. seafood lovers rejoicing. in a few days you can buy some fresh local crab from the
market. finally. bay area fishermen met today and voted to accept the wholesale price of 2.90 a pound. but you can expect to shell out about $6 a pound. and we were there as local fishermen raced to their boths ready to start the commercial crabbing season. boat after boat left the harbor and headed out to sea. big changes are coming to the way your food is packaged. we learned two of the world's largest manufacturers of canned foods will stop using cans lined with bpa. that is the stuff that was phased out of glass six years ago. now campbells and del monte says they won't use it anymore too. it has been linked to cancer and reproductive problems. well the golden arches may be going extinct in parts of san francisco. the mcdonalds are disappearing one by one. cate caugurian is outside one mcdonalds that recently closed. cate, what's going on? >> reporter: experts say it is
all about the bottom line. that is money. this mcdonalds behind me shut down after 36 years of being open last year. and, we are learning now it is not going to be the last one in the city to close its doors. bye bye, big macs and so long mcgriddles. >> these are not necessarily failing. most of the chains, particularly mcdonalds, you are looking for strength in numbers. >> reporter: hotel and restaurant consultant dennis gimberling says the numbers are not being made in san francisco. >> the higher rent and labor cost. those are below 5%. >> reporter: last year, mcdonalds closed 154 restaurants across the country. we counted four in san francisco. 820 brian street shut down. 1455 market, 600 van ness and this one near 16th and mission.
mcdonalds won't find a 20 to 35 year least and most of the leases are coming up. >> you are probably paying less than the dollar square foot. when that same lease comes up for renewal, particularly in san francisco where the rents have skyrocketed you are looking at rents that will be 15 to 20 times that. >> reporter: the chain is still making money. just not here. he says the makers of the happy meal are making happier profits in places like europe or asia where the company is expanding. >> they are going to get more demand in the other markets. the profit margins will be higher. >> reporter: especially in a city known for its foody culture and healthier all terntives. >> we are aware of the processed foods and what it means to get the product to your plate. >> reporter: mcdonalds customers i spoke to say the arches are here to stay. >> you are working. you are going to school and you want something quick and fast and somewhat nutritious, you know. everyone wants to go to mcdonalds. >> reporter: i learned the mcdonalds near at&t park which typically gets large crowds,
especially during baseball season, will close its doors this year to make room for a new hotel. but, even with that said, there are still 15 open mcdonalds locations in the city. i did reach out to company for a statement, but they did not respond to my question for comment. reporting live in san francisco, cate caugurian, kpix5. >> it is not every night you see this. a seal surrounded by crime scene tape. a reporter, christin ayers and her photographer spotted this guy or gal wandering around the berkeley arena. the seal is not afraid of the people trying to help it. >> we have to call that this animal was in the roadway. now, we are just waiting for people from the marine mammal center to come collect the animal. >> it is not clear how the seal was hurt, but it did have a tag on it so it should give marine rescuers a clue about it age. >> brian hackney is in the
weather desk tonight. it is a pretty nice night out. >> not bad at all. >> the conditions right now, from santa rosa down to san jose, clear skies reported. that will change by tomorrow morning and some low clouds coming in. rain coming later in the period as we look toward the beautiful bay bridge all lit up to night. san francisco has 52. santa rosa, 46 degrees. here is what is happening on the high-def doppler. it is all pretty much dried up. this stuff aloft and they are not looking for anything in the next three or four days. that low pressure is spinning over the nevada utah border but high pressure giving us a bit of an offshore flow. so in the futurecast while we have low clouds blooming overnight, and we will start the day with some low clouds, especially favoring the south bay. they should dissipate as the day goes on. we will get sunshine and they move right back in. seems like summertime. here is what we are expecting. sun and clouds next tomorrow. and then, a little bit warming by the end of the week. we will be in the low to mid 70s inland.
right now, temperatures are close to where we usual are this time of year. mid to upper 60s in the south bay. we will see livermore at 67 degrees. 68 for pittsburgh. up in the north bay, we will have sunshine and temperatures in the mid 60s so it is a little warmer than it was today. that will hold true in ukiah. we are expecting temperatures in the low 70s . and in the extended forecast, look for sunshine tomorrow. after some low clouds burn off. and then thursday, friday, and saturday, the numbers warm all the way up into the low 70s so we are on the verge of a little bit of a warm spell in the bay area before things turn the other direction. by monday and tuesday next week, that is the next time we see showers moving into the bay area. there will be more snow in the mountains, especially in the rockies. we will be in the western edge of all of that. >> it is coming down. that is good news.

six more wins gives them the all-time single season one-loss record. if i could have a beard like brent burns. sharks against vancouver. they are in attack mode. as joe pavelsky gets the scoring started. then logan coture put the biscuits in the basket. first of his three goals in the game. san jose won it. the sharks are three points behind first place in the pacific division soccer? no. international soccer? we are in columbus, ohio. team usa hosted guatemala. must win. to stay alive as a world cup qualifier. graham back to the net. it was all usa. 4-0, the final. now, they have a 92% chance to advance to the final round of qualifying. you know, before the game, they only had a 10% chance of qualifying so on the strength
